THE STORY:

Kristin Barrali wrote -

In early 2012 the Couch Runners officially formed running in the arboretum in the early mornings. Our motto was "we run, but we don't necessarly enjoy it." Five years later, this is still the case for most of us. The team has grown in numbers, run hundreds-if not thousands- of miles together, complained, cried, and laughed along side one another in the dark, in the snow, and in the heat. Usually we cancel if it's raining. 

Now we're coming together to run for 826 Boston- for kids and for writing, which we all love. 

26 miles is a long way to run, which is why there are now half marathons. But 13 miles is still borderline crazy. Even 6.5 miles, or 3, or 1.5 is asking a lot. 

The Half Half Half Half Half Marathon is reasonable, roughly 0.826 miles. A nice distance to run or walk or amble while supporting youth through 826 Boston.

All proceeds go to 826 Boston's free writing programs. When you register for the run and give $25 or more, you receive a ticket and one free drink!
